Most people worry about three things when taking a sailing holiday: What to bring, what to eat, and the weather. The latter is out of your control, but the former two can be easily managed.
To ensure you are prepared for the weather, you must bring extra clothes, a first-aid kit, sunscreen (a must), toys for water sports, and games to play onboard.
The only thing that’s left now is food. To make the most of your grill and galley, you need to think simple. By that, we mean — half-prepared meals you can put together easily. The only wild card is the fish, which we insist you catch and cook fresh.

Now that you know what you will be having on your weekend boating trip, here’s some advice for you:
- Plan your meals according to the number of days you will spend onboard
- Make a few small meals, such as afternoon snacks, in advance that won’t go bad in the freeze box. For example, sandwiches, yoghurt and granola cups, hummus, veggies, etc.
- Ensure your galley has the proper equipment, such as a boat grill and proper kitchen tools.
In conclusion, adjust your expectations because cooking on a boat can sometimes be difficult. Instead of trying to fancy up the meal to enjoy a gourmet dinner, go for simple recipes that do not require many ingredients.
